Today is the birthday of one of my literary heroes, and one of only a handful of authors who has his own shelf in my library. In fact, he’s the only one who has two full shelves devoted to his works. I’m talking of course about Robert E. Howard. You may think there’s not much still to be learned about Howard. If you read the Two Gun Raconteur blog (and if you don’t, shame on you), then you know productive research into Howard’s life is still going on.
I said in my reading goals post a few weeks ago that I want to read more Howard this year. His birthday is a perfect time to start.
